Natalie Cole gives a Wonderful Performance.
1 April 2001 | by (Coconut Creek, Florida) – See all my reviews

In the movie "Lily in Winter" Natalie Cole and Brian Bonsall are the stars in the movie, they become good friends.

Lily Covington (played by Natalie) who is nanny to a white little boy name Michael Towler (Bonsall) who start to like Lily very much. So Lily and Michael run away to go to Alabama in 1957, but don't weary they will come back. Plus also starring (James Picken,Jr.) who plays "Chick" a mean, sick and stupid man who will do anything to get what he wants. Then there's (Marla Gibbs) who plays "Mazie,Lily's Momma" who is very nice. And (W. Earl Brown) who plays "Sherrif Boyd" who needs help.

This movie is a "must see" so that you will feel happy to find a nice person right next to you, just like Natalie and Brian.
